Learn to Row

Try rowing at Hull Kingston Rowing Club

Rowing is a fantastic way of getting fit at your own pace, meeting new people and learning something new.

One of our main aims at Hull Kingston Rowing Club is to introduce rowing to as many people as possible regardless of age, gender or fitness level. Unlike running, rowing is low impact and works to strengthen all of your body as well as provide a good cardio workout. Whether you want to row for fitness, competitively or socially, we cater for all at Hull Kingston Rowing Club. Our sessions are run by experienced coaches who will help you master the British Rowing technique. No specialist equipment needed! All you need is yourself and some comfortable clothing. For more information please contact us on hullrowingclub@googlemail.com

If you’d like to learn how to row please email hullrowingclub@googlemail.com and we can arrange your first session.

What We Cover:

  • Health & Safety Brief
  • Site Induction
  • Parts of the boat
  • Boat safety check
  • Basic rowing technique & getting in and out of the boat
  • Safety Position
  • Emergency Stop
  • Easy Turning
  • Recap on session 1 and practicing lessons learnt
  • Backing Down (rowing in reverse)
  • Advanced Turning (on the spot)
  • Steering (Not as easy as it looks!)

Sessions are water based so please ensure you bring a spare change of clothes and are capable of swimming 50m in light clothing. In the case of adverse weather we will be running the session in the classroom on rowing machines.

  1. I used to row for Kingston rowing club hull and would be interested in info about the sessions you hold at east park for the disabled as I have a daughter with downs. Wondering if I could help.


    • Hi Richard. Any help would be great and it would be fantastic to get your daughter rowing if she wants! If you send us a message via the disability rowing page we’ll get in touch with you directly.
